Becky Lynch elaborates on why she turned on Charlotte

Ever since she turned on Charlotte Flair at SummerSlam, Becky Lynch has been on the attack against her former best friend and all eyes have been on her.

In an interview with Gorilla Position just before last night’s SmackDown Live went on air, Lynch opened up her attack at SummerSlam, fan rallying behind her and feeling like ‘red-headed stepchild’ of WWE. Highlights of the interview below.

On turning against Charlotte Flair at SummerSlam: “I don’t understand what people are saying to me when they say, ‘well done,’ because I went in there with the intention of winning the title and I currently do not have a title. And I have been burning a hole through the Women’s Division on SmackDown Live for the past few months and then Charlotte shows up and she gets handed a title opportunity and opportunistic as ever when I had that match won, she snuck in and she stole my victory from me one more time. And again she gets handed the gold and I’m left on the sidelines. So okay the crowd the cheered, but what does that mean when I haven’t accomplished anything? And I’m left there with one title while she’s had seven – maybe eight if you count NXT – I’m supposed to be satisfied with that? Am I supposed to be happy with that? That’s not enough for me.”

On fans cheering for her and chanting her name: “I appreciate that they wanted to see me win, but I didn’t get the gold and I think I’ve been preoccupied too much by keeping people on my side. And that hasn’t done me any favors. I have to re-evaluate everything and re-evaluate what I was putting my priorities on. And if that was getting the crowd on my side, if that was getting a friend on my side? Then I’ve been doing it wrong because there’s one reason why I came to WWE and that was to be great and I’m not achieving that. So I have to look at everything, and look at the fact that I’m not on the front of the posters all the time. I’m not on the front of the DVDs. And why is that? It’s certainly not because of me. Because I have been working my ass off the entire time I’ve been here. I haven’t dropped the ball once. But any time that Charlotte Flair shows up, then it’s all about her. It’s all about her. When I was the first woman drafted to SmackDown Live, this show was entirely about me. This show was entirely about me. That title was built because of me. Because the people wanted me to have a championship. Because I deserved it. And because Charlotte Flair had stolen it from me, time and time again, when it was the Divas Title, or when it was the Women’s Title and before there was a brand split. And then, of course, she gets drafted to SmackDown Live and again, it becomes all about her.”

On feeling like the treated like the ‘red-headed stepchild’ of WWE: “In 2017, I had one title match and that was at WrestleMania and it was a six-way? I haven’t been given a fair shot at all. I am the best on this roster, both Raw and SmackDown and I’ve proven that time and time again yet I don’t get the opportunity. Why is that? Is it because I’m not blonde enough? Is that it? Is it because I don’t have enough enhancements? Is that it? I’m treated like the red-headed stepchild of the entire Women’s Division. Yet I have proved time and time again that I am the moneymaker. That I am the person that people will tune in to see. That they will care about. That they want to see me win. Yet it’s being stolen from me every single time.”

Lynch also discusses Ronda Rousey’s time with the WWE so far and the upcoming Evolution PPV.
